Nearly back to normal

Monday, September 23, 2013

My miserable cold has morphed into a cough and is improving so I expect to be all better for our holiday weekend coming up. I did two hours at the pool and felt much better for it, though when I got home I was a little more tired than I expected to be. So I had a sit down. Then I was a bit achy, too, having not exercised much since last Wednesday. I am surprised I stiffened up so much with such a short break away from exercise.
After my holiday I am back into a weight loss phase, my last for 2013. I aim to get myself into a good position for 2014, when I will reach my target weight. This push I aim to lose either 5 or 10 % of my body weight, depending on how long I want to go for. I don't plan to be in weight loss mode for Christmas, but I plan to start up again in February.. Has anyone done a 5% challenge before? I am sure I have seen teams but now I can't for the life of me find them.
Hope you are all Sparking along happily this week.

    I'm glad you are feeling better. Colds often take the wind out of me, so to speak. "they" say it is good to exercise through a cold, but man, I think it is hard to do.

    I can't help you with the 5% challenge thing. I've never done one.

    Yep, sounds like a plan. I did a 5% Challenge once but had too many other irons in the fire then and, although good, it was too time consuming for me.

    Nice to see you coming right. More of it is needed tho'. Not nice the way the Yanks are catching up in the America's Cup tho'.

    Take care... emoticon

    It's amazing how quickly we stiffen up when we have a break from exercise. Great to hear about your goals and strategies to achieve them. Very inspiring!
